About Us


The Seniors Legal and Support Service (SLASS) provides free legal and social work support for seniors experiencing elder abuse, mistreatment or financial exploitation. SLASS is part of Caxton Legal Centre Inc. 

The service can assist where the exploitation or abuse is taking place as part of a family or informal care relationship. Clients should be over the age of 60, or 50 in the case of Indigenous clients. 

Get in touch if you are an older person experiencing or at risk of experiencing abuse, or if you are concerned about someone that you know. 

All contact with the Seniors Legal and Support Service is confidential and free. 

SLASS and Caxton Legal Centre cannot provide assistance with estate planning or conveyancing.
